"Shave-a-Col" for Cancer research!

Can you cure cancer? I sure as hell can’t… but what I can do is help raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)!!!

 

Why am I doing this? Well, that’s easy.

Over my life I’ve lost many loved ones to cancer. A Parent, family members and dear friends.

There isn’t a lot I can do personally to help – I can’t cure cancer myself… but there are smarter people than me that can.

What I can do is help by raising funds to go towards their research. ACRF invests in the brightest minds and boldest ideas in cancer research, so I have decided to raise donation funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. This is where I need your help.

So – how do I do this? Well, by cutting all my hair off! Sounds simple – but it’s been 4 years in the making…

Over 4 years ago my partner had surgery that didn't go quite right... (Long story – not going into it here…) but - at the time I thought it would be resolved fairly easily so I proclaimed to all that ‘I will not cut my hair till it is resolved’….

At the time – I had very short hair – but I thought it wouldn’t be more than a year - easy as…

Well, 4 years later and I still haven’t cut the length of my hair (just the sides) and I have anywhere from a nice neat platted viking look, or a ball of curls, or a manly pony tail, through to my best ‘Harry Potters Rubeus Hagrid impression crossed with a Yowie…’

But it’s time I think to turn this into a positive…

I am doing a shave for cancer research, and this is where I am asking for your help through donations.

Here is the kicker – I’m also putting my beard up on offer. If I raise more than $1500 AUD I’m going to remove my beard as well!!!

I am doing the shave on 19 June 2022.

If you would like to attend the shave event in person please contact me for details.

As little as $1 will make a difference. Any money you can donate will be appreciated.

I think I will be able to see who donates and what their amounts are so I will do a shout out to those who go above and beyond!

Thank you for your generous donation. Together, we can free the future from cancer.
